Foto de Antigua Auto Crosmobile

The export version of the Crosley automobile was named the "Crosmobile." I've seen one in person, but it may have been a standard Crosley with the badges change. It looked like other Crosleys of its vintage, save for the Crosmobile badging. I understand that that is the only difference.

A good number of Crosmobiles were manufactured in Mexico (I believe I posted some of the details here). I've read or heard reports of Crosmobiles in Mexico, Cuba, Japan, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Argentina, Columbia, the Antilles (which may include the Bahamas and Jamaica), Belgium, and Italy. (Also, Puerto Rico, along with "straight" Crosleys.) So I wasn't surprised to see the photo here offered for sale at Argentina's version of eBay. You can find it here:
(Does anyone know whether any Crosleys in Canada were badged "Crosmobile?" Crosleys in additional countries?)

Thanks, Michael. I never saw a genuine Crosmobile, just Crosleys with new-old-stock Crosmobile chrome, but I'll bet the Crosmobile engines still read 'Crosley'. --- Crosley Car Owners Club (CCOC)

I think you are correct. I cannot think of a reason to make block castings with "Crosmobile" on them.

I left some countries out when I listed them off the top of my head. The list that I have:
Antilles (which may include the Bahamas and Jamaica)
Puerto Rico
It would not be a surprise if there were at least one or two in Brazil, Venezuela, Germany, Sweden, the Philippines, and even the U.K.
